i.e. If you make plans to go to the mall at 1PM, and everybody is ready to go and there's still that one person who hasn't even taken a shower due to the deliciousness of his mom's porchetta.
Cowan: Matt it's 1:00 where are you?
MC: Yeah I'm bout to get in the shower now and then I'll be ready in like 20 minutes.
(5 hours later)
Stru (calls Matt): 'Please enjoy your music while your party answers the phone' "Party rock is in the hoooooouse toniiiight. Everybody just have a good ti-"
Stru: Matt wtf it's 6:00 where are you?
MC: Yeah I just got out the shower I gotta get dressed and then eat some stuffed shells and then I'll be at your house.
(Repeat countless amount of times until day is over)
This is a common example of Cacioppo time.
